March is National Music in Our Schools Month, which is sponsored by NAfME. NAfME, the National Association for Music Education, is a group of educators, publishers, and merchants dedicated to preserving and improving music education in the United States. Beginning in 1975, with "Music in Our Schools Day," the celebration grew to include the whole month of March, and beyond. NAfME provides ideas, lessons, and activity suggestions, along with promotional material to support local school music programs.
Chaparral students are excited to be a part of this national celebration. Please join us as we honor the role of music in their lives. All performances will take place in the MPR on the dates and times listed below.
